Malignant pleural mesothelioma sometimes accompanies intractable neumothorax due to the visceral pleural invasion of the tumor. A 68-years-old man was found to have massive pleural effusion and pleural mass combined with pneumothorax by computed tomography(CT). CT guided biopsy revealed the mass to be malignant pleural mesothelioma. Since continuous air leakage was observed by chest drainage, pleurodesis by OK-432 twice and bronchial occlusion by Endobronchial Watanabe Spigot (EWS)were performed. But air leakage continued, and the surgery was performed, however the treatment failed to stop the air leakage...

The aim of this study was to systematically review the efficacy and safety of iodine-125 brachytherapy combined with chemotherapy in patients with advanced lung cancer. PubMed, MEDLINE, EBSCO, FMJS and Web of Science were searched to obtain randomized controlled trials (RCTs), published in English and Chinese, until February 2016. The evaluating indicators were complete response (CR), partial response (PR), stable disease (SD), progressive disease (PD), overall response rate (ORR), disease control rate (DCR), one-year overall survival, two-year overall survival and adverse events...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to compare clinical presentation and risk factors associated with the development of pneumothorax among newborns of different birth weight (BW) categories. METHODS: We collected clinical and respiratory data on all newborns diagnosed with pneumothorax over a 10-year period. Infants were classified into two groups with BW ≥ 2500 g and <2500 g. RESULTS: From 13,811 infants, we identified 77 with pneumothorax (BW ≥ 2500 g in 33 and BW <2500 g in 44 infants)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify clinical warning signs and independent predictors of survival in mediastinitis related to esophagogastric diseases and injuries. METHODS: From March 1998 to February 2009, 36 patients with a mean age of 55.7 +/- 12.3 years old, with mediastinitis due to esophagogastric diseases and injuries were treated. Signs present before diagnosis of mediastinitis were identified. Several presentation and evolutive variables were confronted with mortality and survival...

OBJECTIVE: To contribute our experience for five years in the implemetation of outpatient laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC). PATIENTS: Between January 1999 and March 2004 we performed 504 outpatient LCs. We applied both exclusion and inclusion criteria, an anesthetic and surgical protocol, and discharge-specific criteria. Postoperative management in "fast track" regime. Postoperative period controlled by protocol, including phone calls after cholecystectomy. RESULTS: The ambulatory percentage in the global series was 88...

In the first, the test was preoperatively done to evaluate the surgical risk. The remaining were patients with angina. Dobutamine was started at a dose of 5 micrograms/kg/min and increased up to a total dose of 40 micrograms/kg/min...
